Chicken & The Word!

He said, Hearken, all Judah, you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you King Jehoshaphat. The Lord says this to you: Be not afraid or dismayed at this great mutlitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.
II Chronicles 20:15

God will use things you pay attention to to speak to us because we don't always listen to Him at times. He often uses my little boy to speak to me. I wanted to share this precious moment with you.

This morning I was watching Joyce Meyers and Joshua was sitting right beside me. She was teaching on not complaining but offering praise to God. She used a sandwich to show how we should pray to God. How one slice of bread is our foundation and the inside or middle, she used chicken, was what we petitioned Him with, which included Lord my back hurts and other examples. Then she put the 2nd slice of bread on and says we should return to praise after our petition.

Joshua inquires, "Momma, What is she doing?" I said she is teaching the Word of God. I continued, you know how mommy went to church and spoke to people about the Bible, that is what she is doing. He waited a moment and exclaimed ...Chicken and ...the Word??? He understood teaching the Word but didn't get the chicken part. He was trying to figure out how chicken and the Word went together.

God bless our children! I can't wait until Joshua shows me through Christ my next life lesson. I learned some things may not make sense but to God they have a purpose. We only know in part.
